This weekend I’ve realised that lately, I’ve been saving many images of interiors with yellow on them, from mustards to powdery pastels, from classic country homes to contemporary city apartments, they all seem to have an instant uplifting effect on me. But I’m also aware that many people are afraid to use it at home- it’s not an easy colour to get right! That’s why I’ve rounded up in this blog post some of my favourite interiors that I hope inspire you to use this wonderful colour more often: whether if you opt for a pop of yellow on a lampshade or you want to make a bold statement with a room a la Colefax and Fowler.
